Mt. Cho Oyu Expedition

Trip Code: TXC

40 Days

Mt. Cho Oyu from Tibet

Mount Cho Oyu (8,201m) on Tibet side is regarded as the world's 6th highest peak situated 20 km to the west of Mt. Everest along the Nepal - Tibet (China) border. The south –west ridge belongs to Nepal & north –west ridge belongs to Tibet (China).This mountain from Tibet side is not technically demanding and the climbers can attempt it without taking much risk. But, Cho-Oyu is still unclimbed from southwest ridge due to its technical difficulties. Mt. Cho Oyu on Tibet side is fairly plain.
Mt. Cho Oyu was first attempted in 1952 by an expedition team organized by the Joint Himalayan Committee of Great Britain as preparation for an attempt on Mount Everest on October 19, 1954, via the northwest ridge by Herbert Tichy and the Austrian expedition team.
It requires an extra push to reach the true summit peak on the far end of the high snowfield. Summit day, though long and arduous, is well worth. We rest and acclimatize at Chinese Base Camp and make the necessary climb preparation before making our ascent to advanced base camp at 5,700m. Then we establish Camp 1 at 6,400m, Camp 2 at 7,000m, Camp 3 at 7,500m and the following day attempt for the summit.

Trek Himalayan will arrange all necessary infrastructures for Mount Cho Oyu climb and summit in Tibet, China. We provide all necessary paper works for expedition permit, organize all logistics during the expedition such as camp facilities, transport luggage, set up high camps, fix ropes, provide food, high-quality tents, porters, professional Climbing Sherpas, oxygen, satellite telephone, Waki Talkie set, counseling and assistance.
